I spotted this little beauty when they were being repotted yesterday. It will not be going on the sale bench without a " NOT FOR SALE.. DISPLAY ONLY" label on it.The shape reminded me of a south american anteater. Ficus retusa make great bonsai specimens and I hope this one retains it,s fantastic shape. I hope you like her. Bob.
